The Project Management Institute required that professionals it certifies work on their skills with Professional Development Units (PMI PDU).
For the PMP certification, the minimum annual requirement is eight credit hours for each of the three categories in the PMI Talent Triangle and a minimum of 35 hours overall. (The three categories are strategic and business management, technical, and leadership.) The additional 11 hours can be in the category(ies) of your choice.
